Novena-Chanel Davies, BSc (Hons), MBACP (Reg.) - Counsellor, Supervisor, Coach
Hello and welcome
My name is Novena-Chanel, and I am a registered integrative Counsellor/Psychotherapist, Life Coach, Nutritional Advisor, Reiki Practitioner and Clinical Supervisor. I also work as a Media Consultant and Workshop Facilitator, advising on issues around Childhood Sexual Abuse, Domestic Violence, Family Breakdowns, and Self-Care.
I work from an holistic and therapeutic approach; working with my clients to identify and work through difficult patterns within their lives' and relationships; supporting them to begin challenging negative thought patterns and circumstances. My aim is to empower you to realise and work towards your full potential; while building practical and realistic foundations to maintain your desired therapeutic goals, long after our work together ends.
Although some may find talking to family and friends helpful and nurturing, others may find that the close relationships prevent them from being completely open and honest; fearing repercussions, gossip or ridicule. However, the counselling relationship offers you a safe, confidential and protected space and time; where you are supported in exploring your concerns; being given permission to cry when you are hurt, and show anger when you have been let down. It is a professional relationship where your experiences are respected and accepted; regardless of your age, life history, background, thoughts or experience. For some, it is their first experience of a relationship where they are valued for who they are and what they present, without bias or judgement.
What about Counselling or Coaching in the Park/Outdoors?
I understand that for some, the constraints of a therapy room may be daunting, and even off putting; so I offer a new and innovative approach of Counselling and Coaching in the Park; highlighting the need to continuously move forward, while maintaining a connection with self and our surroundings.
Outdoor Locations: Kennington Park, Hyde Park, or Victoria Park (one Lunchtime appointment available per week in Victoria Park).
Online Skype Therapy
I also offer Skype sessions for those who are housebound, or unable to attend regular sessions due to international travel/residency, and/or shift work.
How do you book an initial Consultation/Session?
You've taken the first step already!
If you think that Counselling or Coaching might be of help to you, or you are unsure and want to discuss it further, please feel free to contact me for a brief chat. Our first session will work as an initial assessment; a chance to meet each other; talk over your concerns; learn more about the way I work; and most importantly, ensure that you feel comfortable to continue.
Feel free to visit my website for more information at www.talktoatherapist.london.
Training, qualifications & experience

I have worked within the NHS as a Counsellor, as well as numerous other well-established and respected charities such as Solace Women’s Aid, London Friend and The Women’s and Girl’s Network.
